The event was organized by school home liaison Ariana Suhr and math teacher Kristine Kaufman.

Speakers representing 11 different career fields, from financial advisers to first responders, prepared 40-minute classroom presentations.

The special guests outlined a day in a life in their profession, and answered questions about schooling needed and potential earnings.

Students were allowed to select three sessions, and were paired based on their interests.

Each fifth and sixth grader were given a college fair passport and event T-shirt.

The passports guided the students in asking the presenters questions.
